Some of us may also have fabric associated with these patterns…
The March Challenge is to select three of those patterns and to ask you to vote for one which will be sewn for March.
Now, my pattern stash is trying to keep up with Heather B of "all the patterns" and there are some gems that need some TLC before they are worthy.
There may also be some fabric that's waiting on the aforementioned pattern tweaking….
Getting to this glorious stage isn't going to happen in the next month ;)
|Voting for all!!|
So, I've chosen a luscious knit from the Clegs sale that I pat every time I pass and paired it with the first pattern I saw from Drape Drape - top #1 that I've never even traced….. I even have a draped red knit top shaped hole in my wardrobe (the RTW version is simply, worn out!)
Second is a geometric purple, brown & grey silk that I went back to the Fabric Store to buy and will be a straight-maxi-wrap skirt - again, it's RTW partner is wearing out (and not silk nor fabulously strikingly geometric!)
Style 3296 is from 1971 and is simply adorable, although the silk may not need the button detail. It also has a really cute wrap top for more sewing procrastination ;)
Vogue 9703 was the only other straight maxi wrap skirt pattern in my collection.
Third is from left field - I adore this early 1970's influenced/Art Nouveau inspired rayon I bought at the same time as the floral rayon for my Victory Nicola. I also adore my mum's 1960's stash of shift dress patterns and Butterick 2772 is one of them. I don't think the rayon will hold the pockets well, but will drape a collar nicely. I do reserve the option to make the collar in a plain navy or convert it to a boat neck! ;) Simplicity 8139 from 1969 is just adorable; again, I'm not too sure on the high neck & keyhole (love it, but I do like to breathe).
Oh, and if you want to leave a comment along the lines of "Just make the pants already", (February's challenge) feel free ;)
